Phase Status Notes
Powers on?
Passes firmware self-test?
Working serial console? “S3” switch needs to be in “up” position; use MMJ-DB9 adapter (DB25 port doesn't run a console)
Framebuffer works? use DB3W3-3BNC adapter and 5BNC-VGA adapter (sync-on-green)
OS boots? attempted to boot from OpenVMS install CD without success
Working GUI?
Working input devices? Need proprietary DEC peripherals
